Dr. Rudy Meuller, author of AS SICK AS IT GETS, speaks in Jamestown, NY. Jan 19, 2005. Dr. Mueller describes case after case of peoples tragedies resulting from the lack of health insurance or lack of adequate health insurance. As it stands Americans are paying twice as much for healthcare than the top 9 other industrialized nations and recieves a ranking of 39th best healthcare in the world, partly due to uninsured people not getting regular checkups because of cost resulting in emergency room care that not only costs more for all of us but often fails to save the patients lives because it is so late in thier ailments progression. Universal Healthcare would not only be a wiser use of our money, it would reduce crime and suffering nationwide.
